Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for special machinery as well as precise preparation. A yacht is a very prone to damage and valuable load. Possible damages (that are pretty simple to get) may seriously diminish the boat’s financial worth. That’s why it is smart to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a yacht – his knowledge as well as skills will be your warrant that your boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.

Still even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things yourself. Firstly, check the exact dimensions of your yacht. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be best to measure the boat yourself, as even slight differences in size can make shipping more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when looking for someone to transport your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length does not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it should be measured where the boat is widest, usually in the middle of the yacht.

Please, note that giving the transport provider the right dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the transport but also its price. More than that, it may also influence the time the shipping can take place – because there are countries where the boats above a particular size may not be allowed on the road in some times of a day.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). If you decide to hire a hauler, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of securing the cargo. When looking for a right hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.

The price of yacht shipment largely hinges on the dimensions of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it may alter the price of the shipment.
